The phrase “Original sin” is not used to describe the very first or original sin committed by Adam and Eve. Original sin refers to the result of the first sin – the fallen condition of the human race. All people are born with a sinful nature or “original sin”. This is not the nature that we were originally created in, but Adam, as our representative, plunged the human race into sin and corruption. Humans are sinful because of their solidarity with Adam. “Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned—” Romans 5:12 ESV.
